Forum: classic_tv Subject: Another "Dick Van Dyke Show" episode in PD?

The internet archive has the known 6 PD episodes from "The Dick Van Dyke Show", but I Found that Wikipedia says another episode from season 3 is also public domain.
They say the episode is 3x30 "My Neighbor's Husband's Other Life".
Anyone knows for sure if these one is also in Public Domain?

The episode was made in 1964 and contains a copyright notice. With legislative changes in 1992 copyright no longer needs to be renewed to last beyond the initial 28 year period. This affects all movies from 1964 onwards. If it is from that time and contains a copyright notice it is copyright, regardless of whether it was registered or renewed with the copyright office. So it is only the 6 unrenewed season 2 episodes which are genuinely PD. The 7th episode mentioned on wikipedia is a mistake.

My guess is it is PD.
